Roger Federer lost not only his chance at a 16th Grand Slam title yesterday but also his cool as he vented his frustrations out at the chair umpire in between games. Listen, I like to see this kind of stuff in tennis. Makes it more interesting. The tennis elite class will tell you that this is uncalled for and has no place in the game. I call it being competitive. Congratulations go out to Juan Martin del Potro for winning his first Grand Slam title. He beat Rafa and Federer. He deserved this title and if you haven't had a chance to watch the 20 year old Argentinan play you should because his forehand stroke comes at you like a Nolan Ryan fastball. 100 mph plus!

Anywho, this will be the last we talk about tennis for a while considering 75% of the world population doesn't even know it still exists. It's hard to pay attention to a sport that tells you to be quiet every time something remotely exciting happens.

As Roger Federer would say,"Don't tell me to be quiet, when I want to talk I will talk, I don't give a shit." I agree.
